A full-length movie about Marvel Comics’ first Asian superhero, Shang-Chi, was promised by the Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during a press event for Avengers: Endgame in 2019 and here we are finally! This news was again further proliferated at San Diego Comic-Con along with the movie’s director, Destin Daniel Cretton and the leading man of the movie, Simu Liu.
And this fall, we need to gear up to experience the Master of Kung Fu’s big-screen debut that is officially slated in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. In 1973, within the pages of Special Marvel Edition #15, we saw Shang-Chi making a debut appearance. The martial arts prodigy is initially groomed to become an assassin by his villainous father.
However, Shang-Chi changes his mind and decides to take down Fu Machu, his father, after realizing his father’s evil plans. He then joins hands with several of his fellow superhero peers in the Marvel comicverse including his martial arts trainer, Spider-Man and the Avengers, making it all the more exciting to take down the gang of evildoers before retiring.
The crime fighter’s basic origin tale is likely to have been incorporated into the movie. This is what we can guess from the movie’s teaser trailer that dropped recently on April 19, 2021. Moreover, we will be getting an inside look as to how the production house would be dealing with this father-son relationship as well. Mostly, we see the universe getting emotional when it comes to handling family matters but here’s a crucial turn taken by the directors to introduce a conflict within close family members.
